Halloween décor can get pricey once you add it all up. That’s why we like to get as creative and handy as possible around the holidays. DIY projects like these pillowcase chair covers are fun, easy and affordable!
Nothing screams “Halloween” quite like a jack-o-lantern, so we thought it’d be a great focal point for this piece. Make just enough to decorate for a spooky-themed party or double-up on the supplies and share the goods with friends.
Make sure to slip on some disposable gloves to keep your hands color-free.
When it comes to decorating your chair covers, it’s all about personal preference and style. Add a decorative bow for a festive fall touch. Or, get kids involved in the creative process and have their special touches shine bright.
